Monument to Chapí

Multimedia Gallery

Constructed by the Villena sculptor Antonio Navarro Santafé in the year 1947, it was conceived of as a tribute to the brilliant musician Ruperto Chapi, also born in Villena. The monument is located in the park that carries his name. After a number of projects presented by Navarro Santafé, the Town Hall and the Ateneo Cultural "Ruperto Chapí" decided on the monument we can admire today. The work, sculpted using rock from Monóvar and from the Sierra del Morrón, is presided over by a sedentary sculpture of Chapí (of extraordinary likeness), which is surrounded by allegorical figures from two of his works: "La Bruja", on his left, and "La Revoltosa", on his right.
